Emirates Brings Vietnam Closer for ex-Dublin Passengers

Emirates Brings Vietnam Closer for ex-Dublin Passengers

Emirates commenced daily direct flights from Dubai to Hanoi, Vietnam, on 1st July. The new route provides Emirates’ passengers from Dublin via Dubai another seamless route to Vietnam. Passengers travelling to Hanoi will no longer stop in Yangon, saving approximately 2h30m travel time.

The new non-stop service is operated with a two-class configured Boeing 777-300ER with 42 seats in Business Class, 386 seats in Economy Class and up to 20 tonnes of capacity for cargo, with generous free baggage allowance (up to 35kg in Economy Class and 40kg in Business Class).

Flight EK394 from Dubai departs at 03.30 and arrives at Hanoi’s Noi Bai International Airport at 13.05. The return flight, EK395, departs from Hanoi at 01.30 and arrives in Dubai at 05.05. Timings of the service have been scheduled to allow for seamless connections from and to many European and GCC destinations, via a convenient stopover in Dubai.

Emirates won the World’s Best Inflight Entertainment award for a record 13th year at the Skytrax World Airline Awards 2017. Recently, Emirates was recognised as the Best Airline in the World in the inaugural TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards for Airlines. In addition to clinching the grand prize, the airline was the biggest winner with four other awards including Best Major Airline – Middle East & Africa, Best Economy Class, Best First Class, and World’s Best Airlines – Top 10.
